Better than Lavamancer's Skill, as it can target players.

Also, the art is badass.

@Kelrath : While you CAN activate it in response of a player casting a spell, casting puts it on stack, and no longer in hand. You can activate it when your opponent can't possibly cast a spell other than an instant, achieving a soft lock or an effective lock, depending on who you're facing (If your opponent can't remove your creature or use his graveyard to play, you'll usually win, save for the occasional Obstinate Baloth) . It's still a good combo, just doesn't work like that.

This card can set up so many combos. Hateflayer, Stigma Lasher, Pili-Pala, Fallowsage... the list goes on and on. How can one not give this five stars?

Strictly worse version Lavamancer's Skill....why not just do a reprint?

I agree though, it's good with untapping.

I would really say that Fire Whip is the better card outside of multiplayer team games as the only limitation is that the Whip needs to be put on your creature, whereas Power of Fire doesn't. Though, unless you have a deck that splashes red that is designed just to assist ... then I would think the whip is still better as it can be sacrificed in response to still chip in that 1 extra damage.

Is it possible to enchant Hypnotic Specter with this and damage a player in response to him or her playing a spell? If that works, that would place the discard effect on the stack before the spell being played. Late in the game, this would force them to discard the only card in their hand, leaving nothing to play.
